The Revolution by S.L. Scott

A brand new full-length SEXY as SIN Rock Star STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling Author of The Resistance.

My world was rock solid.

Until I saw her.

Lara Kessler showed up as if heaven sent her to me, and suddenly my priorities changed. Love is funny like that. One minute you’re living the dream, then BAM! Half my soul shows up backstage wearing a purple shirt and sexy skin-tight jeans, making me realize what I’ve been missing all along. Loving her means exposing a life I’ve tried to bury.

My heart had lost its beat.

Until I saw him.

Kaz Fabian caught my attention the moment I laid eyes on him. Love is funny like that. The famous guitarist was every woman’s fantasy–great face, chiseled jaw, cut biceps. The rock star was pure sex on and off stage, but his charm and charisma won me over. Loving him means burdening him with a life I’ve tried to leave behind.

With her future dim and his past in the spotlight, can they overcome their fate or will they just be another tragic love story?

This book is the latest from S.L. Scott, whom I absolutely adore. This is, technically, a standalone, but has characters from the Hard to Resist series. So you can read this by itself and everything will make sense, but you could also read the Hard to Resist series and get the other characters’ stories too. Which is something I intend to do.

I really don’t know what it is exactly, but rock star books are some of my favorites. This book is no different. Lara and Kaz have met before, but the timing has never been right for them. But things start to change as the opportunity to spend more time together joins these two together.

I really liked Kaz. I think my favorite aspect of his character is that he showed Lara he cared with his actions. Even when he was hurt or not sure where her head was at, he made sure that his actions reflected his feelings for her. At one point in the book, you start to see the big picture for Kaz and how he is working towards the life he wants. I truly admired that in his character. I also liked that he just does these things. He doesn’t need to consult with his friends before he acts. He follows what is in his heart.

I will be transparent here and say Lara was not my favorite character. With that said, based on the situations she encounters in the book, I felt her character was written correctly. I don’t want to give any spoilers but I will say that Lara does have an ex-boyfriend that she is dealing with.

I think Lara acts as a lot of women would have in her situation. So while I didn’t necessarily love her character, I do think she acted like a lot of women probably do. For that, I gained a lot of respect for the author. I think its easy, as a reader, to look at a character and be frustrated that they did one thing vs another. But this book takes on very real issues and sheds light on them. I thought that was truly invaluable. It made me see things differently than I originally did.

I would recommend this book. I loved seeing Lara and Kaz come together, despite the many road blocks that are in their way. Their story actually reminded me of a quote I heard once before, that with the right person, life can be restful. I think Lara and Kaz are the epitome of that quote. No matter what was going on, they could come together and everything would become better for them.
